The AWARE architecture: supporting context-mediated social awareness in mobile cooperation
Maintaining social awareness of the working context of fellow coworkers is crucial to successful cooperation. For mobile, non colocated workers, however, this social awareness is hard to maintain. In this paper we present the concept of Context-Mediated Social Awareness to denote how context-aware computing can be used to facilitate social awareness. We illustrate the concept in a case study of mobile collaboration in a hospital and presents the ‘AwarePhone’, which is designed to support context-mediated social awareness among hospital clinicians. Based on this conceptual and empirical basis, the paper present the AWARE architecture, which is a generic platform for supporting context-mediated social awareness. Keywords Context-aware computing, social awareness, mobile computing, ubiquitous computing, pervasive healthcare, AwarePhone
